ROUGH DRAFT Dress code has been the biggest topic in Treasure Coast High School. There have been many meetings regarding that issue. There should be dress codes for students for many reasons. Some of TCHS dress code rules are collared shirts tucked in, must have sleeves with necklines, shorts/dresses must be at knee length and turtle necks. Like Mallika Sherawat said, “To undress is the dress code these days and I didn’t start it. We are all voyeurs, so why the complaints? Until girls don’t walk in a swimsuit on the stage, they don’t get the crown, so why is everyone so holier-than-thou?”
Can It Ever Be Perfect? In the “Perfect dress” by Marisa de los Santos, Marisa describes how women view themselves. Women are never satisfied with their appearance, always wanting what they do not already have. Marisa explains the significance of a beautiful dress to a woman on low self-esteem. She taught
Art is all around us. There are many different forms of art. It can be something created, captured, or it can be already existent. Not a single person is to say what makes something art because there is a different definition for everyone. However, there are a couple factors that come into mind whenever someone decides to declare something as art. In this essay I will be comparing and contrasting four different pieces of art. I will be discussing each art piece’s form, time period of creation, intention or purpose, and value. These four pieces of art are Michelangelo’s Pieta, Fountain by Marcel Duchamp, Mark Rothko’s No.61, and the “Oyster Dress” by Alexander McQueen. These works of art come in all different shapes and sizes but they are valued
Getting the dress custom made does not mean that it will be less expensive; the price relies on the type of fabric, design, and the tailor selected. Furthermore, there is a large variety of fabric to choose from. It differs from traditional silk to the most modern materials used today. The type of fabric and color of your dress is defined by the style and personality, although it is advised to stay close to the modern fashion trends. At least 9 months before the event, the decision of the dress should have been made, and also visited a variety of stores, web pages, and looked through magazines to complete your decision. It is highly recommended to ask the mother for advice or someone that person trusts in case the mother is not there, but it is also not recommended to take more than one person when buying and choosing the dress because different opinions may confuse you and affect the decision. When choosing the dress, you should always make sure you are pleased with what you chose. In addition, it is unconditionally essential to try on all the styles you like and those you do not like since you might realize that you like the way they fit you. Although it was accustomed for Quinceañera dresses to be white or a pastel color and decorated with sequins or extra extravagant
As a teenager, growing up tends to be a struggle for us. Most girls would say that fitting in is a huge deal. Nine times out of ten, finding that one outfit is difficult when you have all these rules. Dress code at school has been a battle between who can get away with it the most. An unknown author once said, “Self-confidence is the best outfit, rock it and own it.” This quote hit home for me in multiple ways. For starters, teenage girls are having trouble trying to be confident and when we have so many restrictions it is hard to feel comfortable in our own skin. With all these restrictions we feel as if we can’t express ourselves. On the other hand, the guys get away with almost everything when it comes to the dress code. I feel as
Any girl that has ever attended public school knows about the struggle of a dress code. On those hot days as the school year approaches, girls pour over their closets trying to find an outfit they won’t get called out for or sweat to death in. All their dresses are too revealing, their shorts too short, and their shirts reveal way too much shoulder—or so the schools say. Girls have been attacked time and time again with dress codes. Policies are almost always directed strictly towards girls; some even specify for girls only. These dress codes are not only sexist towards women, but they limit female’s freedom of expression and their choice to feel comfortable, and they do not teach female’s to have self confidence.
Lurking in the 83-degree weather of October is a classic high school theme. There are dozens of movies whose entire plot describes a high school homecoming. Homecoming rituals at my high school are very cliché; everything revolves around dress up week, the football game, and the (dreaded) dance.
Homecoming Queen is the third installment of the Carter House girl series and a major developing point in the series. As a result, the book contained many key moments or events that all led up to the end of this story and set up the next one, therefore causing me
When choosing the right dress, you should consider looking for the dress that perfectly fits your body and in which you feel completely comfortable. Besides if the young girl would want to add volume from the waist down, a puffy tulle dress will produce the desired effect. In addition, if
First, you have to get possession of a dress. And you have two options-first, use one of your older sister's old dresses, or buy one for yourself. And you already know that
I, Bailey Russell, participated in FCCLA’s Fashion Construction STAR Event. For this project I decided to make an evening gown. My inspiration came from the 1940s and the golden age of Hollywood. The dress is an emerald green full length velvet gown, with a short train. Unlike many students, I drafted my own pattern. This is something that made me stand out as a designer, as none of the other students I met did this. At national convention I presented my gown to a panel of judges, and made a gold rating. I put a lot of dedication in to this project and am proud of my achievements.
I Am Not an Object Laura Bates wrote a very controversial article on May 22, 2015. Her two page article, “How Dress Codes Shames Girls and Perpetuates Rape Culture,” set a tone that is hard to forget. Laura includes detailed examples that capture her readers attention and open one’s eyes to the harm that public school dress codes are doing, not only to the physical image of a girl, but to the self-esteem of many girls as well. There are many thoughts and emotions that follow this topic, because of the many girls that have been affected personally by dress codes, or rather, dress code violations. In this groundbreaking article, the question of whether or not a school dress code shames girls and perpetuates rape culture is answered.
Dress Code: Not Necessary? A dress code is simply a set of rules about what clothing may or may not be worn in a school that each student has to follow. Almost every school has a dress code that their students have to follow by during the school hours. Whether the
Me and my older cousins drag the box outside onto the front porch. As I begin to open the box my hands started trembling. I couldn’t tell if my hands were shaking from the excitement or because it was five degrees outside. It took us two hours to put the hoop together. Our lips felt like icicles we were numb from head to toe, but it was worth every moment. It was the most beautiful basketball hoop I ever seen. It was candy apple red and the backboard had lights on it just in case I wanted to play in the dark. I thought Santa Claus gave me the coolest gift in the world.
I still get sometimes nervous meeting my med-serg patients for the first time. I am still embarrassed that I see a counselor. I didn’t want to tell any of my classmates or anyone. I am seeing Rosemary every other Wednesday at 10 so when Kirsten wanted to meetup for our group poster I felt like I had to think up an excuse for not being able to meet. Like say I have a dentist appointment. But I do have a dentist appointment. I’m going to the dentist Tuesday though so why would I go to the dentist twice, Tuesday and Wednesday. The dentist is right next to Ross so I am going to go there. I like their dresses, they are more comfortable then jeans. Depending on the dress and the jeans. And they make you look fancy. I remember one of the first times I wore a dress to nursing school. I wore it when my pants were getting tight because I was pregnant. Everyone said how nice I looked and asked if I was going somewhere after. I think the main thing now with what I wear is it has to be comfortable. Before I buy anything I ask myself will I actually wear it and is it
